VIEW SPEC SHEET

 

USAGE

NFC Ball Valves are ideal for use when splitting one single hose line where two are required on a fire scene. The Two-Way Ball Valve can be used in hose testing, on fire hydrants, standpipes and pumps. The FMBV Series allows for smooth operation even at high flows with minimal friction loss. The Male adapters are easily removed for seat adjustment.

FMBV 1515 Series is ideal size for Forestry Fire use. It is a small compact valve housing 1 ½” Female Swivel Inlets x (2) 1 ½” Male Outlets. This series can be supplied with 1 ½” Male NPSH or Forestry Quick Connect outlets.

 

TERMINOLOGY

The FMBV 2515 Series are often referred to as Leader Line Wyes, Two Way Ball Valves or sometimes manifolds.

Casting is a process where the metal is melted before going into a mold. The metal pours into the mold and solidifies as it cools. The control of the molten metal temperature is critical. Likewise, the quality of the metal being melted must be controlled so that no impurities get into the molten metal.

Anodizing is an electronic process that converts the metal surface into a durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. Aluminum is ideally suited to anodizing, although other nonferrous metals, such as magnesium and titanium, also can be anodized.

 

MATERIAL

* It should be noted that most fire hose threads are blunt at the top -- but the 5V thread is cut to a sharp "V" point. To do this, the depth of the thread is 1/64th of an inch deeper than the conventional 5 threads-to-the-inch of the Canadian Standard Fire HoseThread.

  

NPSH – National Pipe Straight Hose. NPSH is sometimes referred to as “IPT” or Iron Pipe Thread. NPSH threads are straight threads and require a gasket for sealing between mating threads.

 

NPT – National Pipe Tapered. This thread is most commonly found in pluming applications. NPT is a tapered thread and the seal between mating threads is made by squeezing the threads together. Therefore, no gasket is required. NPT and NPSH threads are similar in diameter and threads per inch.

 

OPERATING PRESSURE

Normal operating pressure to 200 PSI. Tested burst per NFPA 1965.

 

GASKETS

High quality swivel gaskets are lathe cut ozone free EPDM.

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MEASURING THREADS

If a thread gauge and caliper are not available, and a sample cannot be sent, the following method can be used to obtain the correct outside diameter and pitch of the thread needed.

  • Cut a strip of paper about 1"(25mm) wide, long enough to wrap tightly around the circumference of the male thread and overlap at the ends.
  • With a pin, pierce through both layers of the paper (fig.1).
  • Press your thumb firmly against the thread hard enough to make a thread impression on the strip (fig. 2).
  • Remove the strip and circle the pin holes on the strip with a pencil (fig. 3).
  • Divide the distance between the pin holes by 3.1416. The result is the ODM (outside diameter of the male).

It is important that both the ODM and threads per inch (pitch) of the male part are given when ordering. Always include the paper strip with your correspondence. If not specified, "V" sharp thread will be furnished.
